Science Studies

We offer supervision for PhDs in all of our areas of expertise regarding cultural imaginaries and material practices of science and technology, including policy analysis, new genetic technologies, environment, health and medicine, and information and communications technologies.

Close working relations are enjoyed with other departments at Lancaster, and in many cases there is cross-departmental supervision.
